a dose of red











cardigan  j. crew
blouse  1940's vintage
necklace  the vamoose
belt  thrifted
skirt  1950's vintage
shoes  thrifted

I'm holding on desperately to these last days of sunshine and bare legs. The always beautiful Lauren, my partner in crime, joined me for a stroll in her rather perfect mushroom-hued ensemble. I've been wearing this funny J. Crew cardigan a lot (a friend described it as looking like chainmail) because it's the ideal oddball color to pair with nearly anything... especially bright red.

Both of your outfits are so cute! Especially love your red skirt... and I really do envy you for being able to go out with bare legs... Way too cold to do that in PA (and the snow...)
